Default Strange issue

I owned the truck for almost two weeks now and love it, but I noticed an unusual problem. There is a small,white plastic solenoid behind the glove box that started ticking at random times.

Today, a few minutes after leaving work it started ticking and never stopped. I'm not sure what it controls, but looks like a flapper control for the ventilation. I didn't have the a/c, heat, fan or anything on when it started. I first tried turning the fan on then rotated to higher speeds....no luck...it continued. I switched the control from vents to defroster stopping every position in between....no luck....it continued. I tried switching the a/c on...no luck. I ended up pulling off the road and unplugging the clip that supplies power to it and it stopped. The controls all appear to function normally still. My truck is still under warranty and I plan to take it there to get it repaired but I'm trying to understand what it is and why it's doing it.

Anyone else have this issue?
